Has anyone tried Rapunzel's RIZE active dry yeast? AND organic fresh yeast available in US soon
Hi. I am new to this site and delighted to have found such a wonderful resource for recipes and so many experienced bakers sharing valuable knowledge!
Organic Active Dry Yeast (RIZE by Rapunzel)
I wanted to know if anyone has used Rapunzel's organic active dry yeast RIZE? And if so, do you have any comments and/or suggestions? I haven't been very successful, but given that it is organic, I want to give it a real try.
On their website, Rapunzel USA describes it as: "For Bakers who expect their breads to be as pure as they are delicious, there's RiZE™. As the world's first certified organic active-dry yeast, RiZE offers the same outstanding performance as conventional yeast, yet it's processed without any chemicals and is completely GMO-free.
Organic Fresh Yeast in USA soon
A customer service representative at marroquin-organics.com, a provider of organic goods that services the manufacturing sector and sells in industrial volumes told me about RIZE and also added that although "organic fresh yeast is not currently available in the US, they are working on offering it industrially sometime over the next couple of years. Once the fresh organic yeast is produced domestically, it may take a bit longer to get into the consumer-stream. " Quote from Feb 1, 2008
